Growing healthy tomatoes is not rocket science, but yielding tons of fruit requires a few tricks of the trade (did you know tomatoes were a fruit?)
Other than the obvious soil condition, fertilizer and plenty of sun and water, there is a little trick to growing huge, fruit delivering plants! Remove the sucker leaves!
These suckers suck the nutrients from the producing leaves. You need to remove them as soon as they pop up. They are pretty easy to find. They grow in the joints of the regular stems and suck and suck the life from your tomatoes. I guess we could say these little stems really suck!!
A couple years ago, a friend told me you can plant them in the dirt and they will grow into fruit producing tomato plants. I thought it was impossible but far and behold, it worked! So if you have the space, you can grow lots of tomatoes from your already growing plants!
Hope this little trick gives you millions (ok, maybe that’s a little exaggerated) of tomatoes to enjoy this summer!
